Public Sector

In today’s climate cost savings, staff efficiency and a drive for greater productivity whilst securing data is no mean feat.

Digital transformation is imperative for Public Sector bodies and the drive to reform services is at the root of many departments.

Future trends show that Cloud Services, Cyber Security and Mobile Working are driving forces for change but legacy systems can make it hard to bring about real change.

Legacy systems and infrastructures can be a drain on the Public Sector, overcoming these challenges requires a strategy that is cost-effective, sustainable and maximises the quality of front-line services.

Why Commsworld for the Public Sector?

Commsworld work with a number of Public Sector organisations and supports five of Scotland’s largest public sector ICT contracts, with local authorities in Glasgow, Edinburgh, North Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire and the Scottish Borders and recently awarded a 20-year contract worth £22m with Northumberland County Council to transform it's digital infrastructure.

Our background and experience within the Public Sector means that we understand the challenges and constraints they face but we can offer solutions that are innovative and cost-effective.

Commsworld is accredited on government supported frameworks ensuring the procurement process is simple and easy:

  • Approved supplier on the G-Cloud 12 framework on all 3 lots – Cloud Hosting, Cloud Software and Cloud Support which Public Sector organisations can access across the UK.
  • Approved supplier on Crown Commercial Service, Network Services 3 Framework, for lot 1a: WAN, lot 2a: LAN, Lot 4b: Digital Communication Services (Unified Communications) and lot 4c: Contact Centre.
  • Approved supplier on the Dynamic Purchasing System for Scotland.
  • We also hold Cyber Essentials accreditations and ISO accreditations.

“With regards to our WAN project, I am delighted that an emerging and expanding SME such as Commsworld were able to be a key part of this transformational project for Edinburgh City. 

With this deployment the Council and therefore Commsworld were up against an immensely difficult time barrier to bring the new infrastructure live but it was successfully delivered on time and on budget. Other suppliers stated that this would take 2 or 3 years as opposed to the 9 months within which Commsworld successfully delivered.
